Speaking on The Overlap, Jamie Carragher has questioned how Arsenal have allowed Spurs to be ‘better’ than them in recent seasons.
Spurs’ 5-0 rout of Norwich City on the final day of the season ensured their place in next season’s Champions League at the expense of North London rivals Arsenal who finished in fifth (Premier League).
This marks the fifth straight season, dating back to the 2015/16 campaign, in which the Lilywhites have finished above the Gunners (Fan Nation Futbol).
Carragher was quick to acknowledge the swing in ascendance over the last half-decade: “For a long time now, certainly in the last four or five years, Tottenham have been better than Arsenal.
“I know they have won nothing. I always say Arsenal is a bigger club than Tottenham. As a kid growing up, I know they are.
“But for the last four or five years, Tottenham have been better than Arsenal, how could that have been allowed to happen?”
With Spurs now announcing an extra investment of £150 million which could be used to bolster Antonio Conte’s squad (Spurs Official), silverware will be the next priority for everyone at the club.
If Conte is able to end Spurs’ wait for a trophy, he will forever be adored by the white half of North London, while the red half continue their efforts to catch up.

Whilst Spurs fans will always love having the bragging rights over their rivals, it is becoming such a regular occurrence, that other priorities are now rightfully beginning to emerge.
Conte has claimed five league titles in his past eight full seasons of management (The Sun), so adding silverware at Hotspur Way will be the Italian’s priority.
